I enjoyed the familiarity of the teamwork between the USN and the USMC. I also laughed about "zero-dark-thirty", the short timer calendar and so many expressions I haven't heard for years. The history of the WW II Medal of Honor recipient, Hospital Apprentice First Class Bush is incredible.
On a more somber note, the ceremony for the fallen soldiers at the Memorial service is poignant and a real tear jerker.
"Bravo Zulu " for telling this story. It is one that needs to be read by those not knowing about the combat situations in Iraq. The plastic bags for their toilet needs, the lack of water and food for 24 hours, the close quarter combat situations - all of it is important for learning about our part in that war.
Most highly recommended..
As a Marine veteran with numerous tours in Vietnam, I know what a corpsman means to the Marines he treats, works with, lives with, and in some cases sadly, dies with.
This book is highly recommended to anyone that wishes to see what a corpsman has to deal with in a combat situation.
The book is very well written. It includes vivid descriptions of the corpsman's thoughts and feelings, and Iraq combat scenes. From the pages, I can hear the rockets and mortars. I can see and smell the bloody bodies every a few pages. I can feel the sadness of loss of lives. At the end, Col Brazee presents the memorial service in the last chapter with such details that made my eyes tearing up.
Army medics are of course in the same category.
